Re: Does an accessible video player that works correctly in all major browsers exist?

Maybe you should think about the difference between open source and free of charge.

Open sourcing the player might get you valuable input from volunteers, e..g. suggested code fixes etc. (free of charge for you, doing some of the work you are now doing yourself).

At the same time you could set the license such that certain uses are only allowed for a fee (possibly the same fees you are asking for now).

Just an idea….
